talking about the mosque at ground zero, and obama wanting to bring terrorist into your own backyard. we under estimate the ability of a small group of radical republicans and their friends at fox news and conservative talk radio to really ratchet things up. i wish someone in the press would draw the parallel between president obama's inability to get congress to work on that issue, because he's right it makes better financial and security sense to close guantanamo, and to draw the parallel with immigration reform, and the trouble marco rubio is having getting republicans on board with the likes of fox news. >> michael: that's exactly right. the president spoke about the senate of where rubio serves and, quote, the habit of requiring 60 votes for even the most modest piece of legislation gumming up the works. that's what has happened. >> it's a full flection addiction at this point. i've been watching tweaking out on the senate floor for years now. every year they've been if the minority since they lost it in 2006, they have filibustered more than ever before. at this point every year we

about that obama has been hosting to get reasonable republicans and democratic senators talking and to let them do the work, negotiate it and keep as far away from it as he himself, obama, can, so if they strike a deal it doesn't have obama's fingerprints over it and republicans have permission to side with the republicans who negotiated with it, which i guess we're talking about the green lantern theory and power of presidency. the less the president does, the more he has a chance of enacting something. >> i think that's right. to the republican base obama is so toxic so the fact of him supporting anything would rile him up. at the same time i'm skeptical of this idea that republican and democratic congress need to get together. the tea party caucus is so ideological. and they know how washington used to work and they know there were back room deals and camaraderie. they're not interested in that. they're interested in following their own ideals and not allowing government to work. that's where the problem rests. >> if you look at the phrase it implies have you no power. why wo

days. >> wow. that's too much. thanks. let's go now to washington, and president obama in his weekly address today talking about those big sequester cuts and how congress quickly moved to bring furloughed air traffic controllers back on the job. the furloughs by the faa had caused airport delays across this country. well, here's the president's take today. >> this week, the sequester hurt travelers who were stuck for hours in airports and on planes and arightly frustrated by it. and maybe because they fly home each weekend the members of congress who insisted on these cuts finally realized that they actually apply to them, too. >> nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker is at the white house for us. with a good saturday morning to you, kristen. i know the white house has been calling this a band-aid since the senate passed it on thursday night. so, will the president sign it once it hits his desk? >> hey, good morning, alex. and welcome to d.c. always great to have you here. you know, despite calling it a band-aid he is expected to sign this legislation in to law. and it stand

and obama want to talk about the cooperation they are doing appear to want to be that. we also heard from an aide from moscow saying quite simply the continuation of cooperation will continue. severe obvious efforts for cooperation here on the surface. combined with some strange back chatter we're hearing from you know on the hill et cetera about there not really having been as much information coming from the russians as they would have liked, but looking around we have the russians repeatedly warning the americans well before tsarnaev came on the radar after boston and further information going from the russians to between the mother and sons discussing jihad over the telephone. so there seems to be a chain of information. you don't quite actions of russians in dagestan over the weekend and raid and continuous pass of information feeds together. there certainly seems to be adequate exchange of information right now. wolf the presidents are talking in a cooperative fashion, wolf? >> that's important, they are at least talking about the sensitive suggest. nick

. the really important thing to remember here we've been talking about justice and i think if the obama administration is going to allow itself to be led by the polls that's putting politics over justice but putting politics over sound policy. every single relevant national security stakeholder in the united states government agrees that closing guantanamo is in the national security interest of the united states and we're still not doing it. that's a clear example. the clearest example i've ever seen of putting politics over sound policy. >> john, your contention that guantanamo was an effort to evade the constitution. we're not talking about dealing with u.s. citizens, though, which is not to say we should deal with citizens of other nations that violate our ethics, but this is not -- these are people who are not entitled to the protection of the constitution, presumably. >> right. that's true. i think maybe -- >> that's very much an open question. that's an issue my students and i litigate day in and day out in federal court. >> doesn't mean they should be treated unethically by any

a book about these negotiations and did a lot of talking to the republicans. obama reached a deal and obama walked away from it. well, eric cantor, in his interview with ryan lizza of "the new yorker" a couple of months ago basically corrected him. he said, well, i talked to boehner and said it really wouldn't be a good idea to reach a deal now because then the issue evaporates. the president gets the credit, being re-elected. better to keep it alive and fight it out in the -- in the election. >> and it didn't pay off for them, did -- >> it didn't pay off at all. >> except they held the house but it didn't pay off for them in the senate. he lost twathe sat didn't pay off for him in winning the presidency? >> it was a -- call it a riverboat gamble, i suppose you could say. because what cantor said in that interview was -- if we win it all, then we don't have to compromise. they didn't. but the reaction wasn't, all right, now we have to compromise. instead it was, we're still not going to compromise. >> you've said you have some hope for the senate. there is some seeming to have to
